University of the Pacific (McGeorge School of Law)

Pacific McGeorge is considered one of the finest teaching institutions in the United States because our faculty cares. Their willingness to become personally involved in your legal education, both now and in the future, distinguishes Pacific McGeorge. It's the best reason to begin your legal career here.

Even so, a fine legal education only begins in the classroom. Be sure to investigate the opportunities Pacific McGeorge offers for involvement in actual legal practice – whether working with real clients in our many on-campus clinics or interning in countless governmental, legislative, and judicial positions here in Sacramento and beyond. Our Advocacy program offers our students the opportunity to learn from the best in the field. Discover why our Trial Advocacy program was recently rated Best in the West and among the top programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

You'll find that Sacramento, located in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, is a vibrant and engaged community. Whether your interest is professional sports, jazz, high culture, or outdoor activities, the Sacramento region is truly a "gold mine." It is also the ideal place to study state and local government, as you will learn at our Capital Center for Government Law and Policy.

But don't limit yourself to Northern California. Pacific McGeorge is justly renowned for its many remarkable international programs. Plan now to include time for academic work that will stretch your skills, knowledge and imagination by introducing you to other legal systems, whether in U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's annual Salzburg summer program or any other of the exchange opportunities at Pacific McGeorge.

At Pacific McGeorge you will form life-long friendships and create your professional network of colleagues. They will support you – here in law school and throughout your professional career. Like you, they are carefully selected for their accomplishments, abilities, and background. Law school is a collaborative environment, and those who thrive have learned to work well with others and make time to form professional friendships that provide a lifetime of pleasure and support.

The entire University of Pacific McGeorge community is here to ensure that you become the well-trained, effective, and ethical professional needed in today's world.

Pacific McGeorge is a tight-knit community of students, faculty and staff. You’ll discover why it is one of the best places to study law as you make friends and develop mentors you’ll value for the rest of your life. The professors are accessible and thoughtful. They treat you as an adult, not a child. They encourage you to become involved in hands-on, real-life applications of the law as research assistants, law review editors, clinic student attorneys, and state agencies.

With its 15-acre campus, Pacific McGeorge has a homey feeling. In fact, it is home for more than 150 of the law school’s 700 Day Division students. And with Evening Division students coming and going to night classes, it’s a vibrant community around the clock.

The Pacific McGeorge community offers a variety of clubs and activities sponsored by the Student Bar Association, an elected body whose goal is to make law school as much fun as possible. You can choose from legal specialty, ethnic and hobby clubs -- everything from the Entertainment Law Society to the Asian/Pacific American Law Students Association to the McGeorge Rugby team.

The SBA also sponsors community-action events, including a biannual Blood Drive, Holiday Food Drive and an Angel Tree project. The latter event matches students, faculty and staff with Christmas gift requests from needy neighborhood children.

Students tell us that before coming to law school they had no idea that a law school faculty and administration would actually make the students the top priority. At Pacific McGeorge, "student-centered education" is more than just a slogan - it's reflected in the faculty's open door policy and the fact that the professors are there when the students need them. Unlike students at many other law schools, Pacific McGeorge students have the advantage of feedback from professors throughout their law school careers. Professors are encouraged to comment on exams, and essay exams are returned to students to review and discuss with professors.

The secret is out: students and professors at Pacific McGeorge are a team. They get to know one another. The faculty and administration encourage students to take advantage of the opportunities to learn both in and outside the classroom, and the students benefit from a faculty and administration deeply concerned with the students' success.
